Google Apps Rebranded

Did you realise that it is  ten years since Google launched Google Apps? Things have changed a lot in that period.  The range of apps has extended  from the basics, Google Drive, Docs,  Sheets etc., to include new productivity solutions for education not least the arrival of Google  Classroom.

Now something else has changed  – the name!  From Autumn 2016 Google Apps for Education (GAFE)  is being  re-branded as  G-Suite for Education.

Whilst the range of apps looks familiar Google have introduced the power of machine intelligence.  In computer science, an ideal “intelligent” machine is a flexible rational agent that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal.[1]

Thus  Google have introduced new  features into Sheets, Docs, Slides and Calendar. In the main this involves the capacity of the application to respond to  human language, translating this into a specialist instruction. For example, when working with spreadsheets  you have previously needed to know the formula  to perform a calculation. Now you can instruct sheets as to what you want to achieve and it will  find the formula that delivers.

G-Suite provides an intuitive set of  applications that  are used through the Cloud  on any device, anywhere, anytime. The power of the suite to support learning is immense and Gaia is supporting customers across the country who are making use or transitioning all their core services to G-Suite.  If you would like to find out more why not  explore our on-line  ‘Getting started with ….’  course
